belief that together we are improving the quality of our lives. As physicians and scientists, innovation is at the heart of the research my colleagues and I conduct. Taking new approaches, looking at problems differently and making new connections requires innovative thinking about the genetic and molecular structure of cancer. Those discoveries are transformed into new methods of treating the patients who count on us to improve, extend and even save their lives…which is, of course, the ultimate transformation. Life spared from the hands of cancer. The 2012 fiscal year was one of phenomenal transformation for Massey. We received crucial encouragement from the National Cancer Institute with renewal of our designation and a clear road map of how we can become the first NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in Virginia. Governor Bob McDonnell demonstrated his commitment to our mission with an unprecedented allocation in the biennial budget, which was wholeheartedly endorsed by the General Assembly. Finally, Massey was the beneficiary of an extraordinary $25 million bequest which will allow endowment gifts to be transformed into exceptional recruitment and retention opportunities, ultimately resulting in even greater momentum in our research progress.

appily married for 54 years, Lee and Janet Showalter know the importance of teamwork. It’s what impresses them most
about the collaborative nature of the scientific work at Massey Cancer Center. “So many researchers are focused on their own reputation and publications,” says Janet. “Massey and their researchers combine efforts with other facilities and institutions. That’s very important.” The Showalters are also familiar with the fight against cancer. They had a son-in-law who passed away from a brain tumor six years ago. Lee’s mother fought several cancers before succumbing to pneumonia. And eight years ago, Lee was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), though

Along with conducting leading cancer research and providing compassionate care to thousands each year, Massey also helps train and mentor the next generation of physician-scientists. The new building, scheduled to open in Spring 2013, will include the Massey Research Pavilion consisting of two floors dedicated to elevating Massey’s research efficiency and capabilities.
The Showalters have been giving annually through their family fund at the Community Foundation Serving Richmond and Central Virginia for years. But after Lee saw an article in Massey’s Advance magazine about the cutting-edge CLL research of Steven Grant, MD, Olsson Chair in Oncology Research, he was spurred to take action with greater support. The Showalters decided to give $100,000, to be split between Grant’s research and the construction of Massey’s designated portion of the James W. and Frances G. McGlothlin Medical Education Center, scheduled for completion in 2013. Known for his treatments of blood cancers, Grant has researched the synergistic effects of various drugs to induce programmed cell death in CLL cells. “We’re very excited about newer agents showing significant activity with CLL,” Grant says, adding that his initial data—often obtained with critical philanthropic support— “serves as a catalyst for grants and other awards to continue advancing the research.”

The Showalters had a chance to meet with Grant last fall. “He was able to help us, as novices in this area, to understand what his targets were and the promising direction of his work,” Lee says. The Showalters are originally from Roanoke. Janet was a physical therapy graduate of the Medical College of Virginia, while Lee was a chemical engineering graduate of the University of Virginia. They settled in Richmond where Lee began a distinguished career in the paper industry, first at Albemarle Paper and Ethyl Corporation before helping found the James River Corporation. As an engineer, Lee was duly impressed with the Medical Education Center when the couple took a ‘hard hat’ tour over the summer. The 12-story building will contain 27,000 gross square feet dedicated to cancer research. “One of the floors is a shared resource lab designed for collaboration, where a number of departments will utilize various research resources,” Lee notes. Just the kind of smart teamwork the Showalters like to see. VCU Massey Cancer Center 2011/2012 > 3

assey Cancer Center distinguishes itself through innovation. Innovation
at the hands of researchers like Devanand Sarkar, PhD, a Harrison Scholar who has devoted his career to studying liver cancer, or hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Like most innovators, Sarkar loves a challenge. Liver cancer is one of the most understudied cancers in the United States, even though its incidence rate has been steadily increasing. The need for funding remains as important as ever. This difficult-to-treat cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths worldwide, accounting for more than 600,000 deaths every year. Once diagnosed, there are few options for treatment. However, Sarkar has had great success over the last four and a half years with mouse models that could lead to promising new therapies. “We have made significant strides in understanding the molecular mechanism of liver cancer progression,” says Sarkar, a member of Massey’s Cancer Molecular Genetics program. His lab team has identified several new molecules involved in HCC. One of the genes his lab has been working with, Astrocyte elevated gene-1 (AEG-1), was originally cloned by fellow Massey scientist Paul Fisher, PhD, program coleader of the Cancer Molecular Genetics program and Thelma Newmeyer Corman Chair in Cancer Research. Both scientists came to Massey together from New York.

“We’ve had a strong collaboration between our groups for years,” Sarkar says. Sarkar was drawn to the “groundbreaking work” being done at Massey. Since he arrived, he’s been producing results. His work has led to the identification of another gene, LSF, as an important regulator of liver cancer and development of small molecule inhibitors of LSF as potential therapy for this fatal disease. But Sarkar is quick to point out that none of it would be possible without the philanthropic support from the Harrison family through their foundations. “I really thank the Harrison family. They’ve allowed me to make some bold steps to do some really cutting-edge work,” Sarkar explains. “I can use that preliminary data to submit for new grants.
I nnovation through
Their support is vital and means so much to me.”
Sarkar’s mouse models, and the implications for AEG-1 and LSF, could well lead to new therapies in the near future. “We are exploring non-toxic therapies, such as LSF inhibitors, that are significantly reducing liver cancer in mice,” Sarkar says. “So it all looks very promising.”
Gone are the days when scientists worked in secret, guarding their work and discoveries behind closed doors. Now, collaboration is an essential part of research, and seen by many as the only way advancements will be made.

Sarkar hopes that within the next year, his new data will allow the start of clinical trials—signifying the translation of his research into a treatment for patients.

ecuring National Cancer Institute (NCI) grant support for research is tougher than ever in these challenging
economic times. Internationally known Massey researcher Steven Grant, MD, Olsson Chair in Oncology Research, whose prolific blood cancer work is showing great promise for patients with acute forms of leukemia, understands the risk this represents. “There is strong potential that some opportunities will be lost because we won’t have sufficient funding to follow up promising leads,” Grant says. “Philanthropic support is crucial because it allows us to seize these opportunities.” Grant’s innovative work won a highly competitive $1.2 million dollar NCI Grand Opportunity or “GO” grant, funded by the

These early clinical trials represent the critical juncture where Massey’s translational research moves from laboratory into patients. Extensive teamwork between basic scientists, clinical researchers, and translational researchers is key, Grant notes. “That is a major strength of Massey Cancer Center,” Grant says. “We have an outstanding track record extrapolating these findings from the bench to the bedside.” Massey physician-scientist Beata Holkova, MD, Harrison Scholar, a blood cancer specialist, is a crucial link in the translational process. She has the challenging job of writing pre-clinical protocols (a scientific road map) for Phase I trials, which are designed to

determine safe dosage of new drugs. Roberta was one of fewer than 30 participants in the trial, which had a stunning five patients who responded positively with partial or full remission—an extremely encouraging sign. “It’s very unusual for this kind of success in the early phases,” Grant says. “We’re really excited about the prospects and newer concepts that could theoretically build on this work.” Richardson’s health improved enough to receive a stem cell transplant and she recently passed her 100th-day posttransplant, an important milestone. But she says she couldn’t have managed without the supportive, hands-on Massey researchers, who even checked with her on weekends. “I never felt at any time in the process that I wasn’t fully engaged in my own treatment,” Richardson says. “They glean everything they can.” This early success “can speed up the process of getting to Phase II and III trials, and ultimately approval as a standard treatment,” Holkova says. Meanwhile, Richardson, who just turned 54, is being weaned off her post-transplant drugs. Then life goes back to normal, hopefully. “You have to look at it like this: Even if the clinical trial doesn’t help you, it’s going to help somebody,” says a grateful Richardson.

ike many before her, when Kaity Kasper was diagnosed with cancer, she
was blindsided. Just 23 years old, she had the typical invincibility of young adulthood and the best of life ahead of her when she received the biopsy results on the swollen lymph node in her neck. “I was thinking about anything other than a cancer diagnosis,” she recalls. Her doctors at Massey determined she had Hodgkin’s lymphoma stage 2B. She immediately began treatment. “I hate doctors and I hate hospitals,” Kasper says. “But the staff at Massey doesn’t make you feel like a patient, they treat you like a person. They know it’s not your whole life.” She befriended nurses who even helped her prepare for the Law School Admissions Tests while she was receiving chemo treatments. “Despite the brutal reason I was there, I fell in love with Massey, and I looked forward to seeing these extraordinary people whenever I was there.”

Kasper finished her treatment in November of 2002. She is now an attorney with a passion and sense of duty to raise awareness among her peers about the importance of cancer research. She’s done this in many valuable ways—serving on the board of the Massey Alliance (Massey’s junior board), and volunteering on numerous fundraising and patient services committees. She is now preparing to make her biggest mark in her effort to honor the place she credits with saving her life. Soon after her successful treatment, Kasper began participating in the Massey Challenge, a fundraising partnership with the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k. Her first year, she raised nearly $2,000. A spark was ignited. “I wear the survivor bib during the race. No less than four or five total strangers, come up and start running with me each year,” Kasper says. “The Challenge is empowering and brings something very beautiful to something that can be very sad and frustrating in people’s lives.”

Ensure that patient care is backed by the latest research:
• A study of new, non-invasive technology shows
improved ability to detect prostate cancer cells circulating in a patient’s bloodstream. The study led by Andrew Poklepovic, MD, tests the new technology by ApoCell, Inc. that allows the scientists to collect more circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in patients compared to the 80 percent detection rate of the other leading CTC detection system. Scientists will next evaluate what information the technology can obtain about other forms of cancer.
• The results from a Phase I/II clinical trial conducted by Michael Hagan, MD, PhD, and Mitchell Anscher, MD, show that a new combination of radiation therapies allow higher radiation doses to safely and effectively treat prostate cancer while lowering the risk of recurrence and minimizing radiation exposure to nearby healthy tissue and organs.
Translate proven laboratory concepts into original Phase I clinical trials:
• Andrew Poklepovic, MD, is principal investigator of a pilot study to compare the toxicity of doxorubicinbased chemotherapy combined with sildenafil, also known as Viagra. Sildenafil may increase the anticancer effects of doxorubicin-based chemotherapy while helping reduce toxicity to the heart caused by doxorubicin. The trial is being conducted in patients with solid tumors that may be treated with doxorubicin, including breast, gastrointestinal and gynecologic cancers. Based on the research of Rakesh Kukreja, MS, PhD
• Andrew Poklepovic, MD, is the principal investigator of a pilot study to test whether patients who take lapatinib while receiving radiation therapy to treat metastases in the bone will have lower concentrations of transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF-alpha), which causes cancer cells to multiply faster and may play a role in cancer cell survival after radiation therapy. Based on the research of Paul Dent, PhD

Pave the way for notable scientific discoveries by providing support for our exceptional research faculty:
• William C. Broaddus, MD, PhD, led researchers in
the discovery of a mechanism found in glioblastoma (GBM), the most common and aggressive form of brain cancer cells, that reduces the cancer’s ability to invade healthy brain tissue. The collaboration with researchers at Old Dominion University was published in the Journal of Neurosurgery, and is leading to new therapies for this difficult-to-treat disease.
• Steven Grant, MD, led a team of scientists that
included Mohamed Rahmani, PhD, to uncover a new therapy for acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Published in the journal Blood, the study found the two drugs obatoclax and sorafenib work better together to increase cell death and cause less damage to surrounding tissue, than when the drugs were given individually.
• Grant’s team also discovered a new combina-
tion therapy for multiple myeloma that uses the drugs obatoclax and flavopiridol working together through different mechanisms to promote apoptosis, a form of cell death. The research was published online in the journal Cancer Research.
• Researchers, led by Devanand Sarkar, MBBS, PhD,
developed the first mouse model to demonstrate the role of the cancer promoting gene, Astrocyte elevated gene-1 (AEG-1), in liver cancer. This model could lead to novel therapies for the disease and moving forward, researchers plan to use the model to investigate fat metabolism and obesity-related diseases as well.
• A multi-institutional research study has uncovered a protein function that may lead to unique treatments for lung cancer, one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Paul B. Fisher, MPh, PhD, was part of the study published in the journal Genes & Development that discovered that the protein Bax Inhibitor-1 (BI-1) regulates autophagy, one of cancer cells’ most important survival mechanisms. By reducing BI-1 levels, autophagy is prevented, leaving cells vulnerable to common treatments.
16 > VCU Massey Cancer Center 2011/2012
• Led by Kristoffer Valerie, PhD, a group of Massey researchers discovered a new function of BRCA1 gene mutations that could refine treatments. The findings suggest that caution should be exercised when targeting BRCA1 for breast and ovarian cancer therapies.
Conduct research to understand how to better educate, prevent, diagnose and to control cancer:
• Jennifer Elston Lafata, PhD, published a study
in American Journal of Preventive Medicine that revealed that patients who annually visit their doctor for check-ups may not receive half of the preventive screening tests and counseling services that could benefit their health.
• Richard Brown, PhD, led an international study of
early stage breast cancer patients to understand their preference in regard to their level of involvement in deciding their care. Reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, the study demonstrates the importance of oncologists understanding their patients’ preferred level of involvement as it is directly related to the patients’ satisfaction with their care.
• In a study, Yi Ning, MD, ScD, found that nearly
half of cancer survivors died from conditions other than cancer. The results were presented at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting and showed that only 51 percent of cancer survivors died from cancer and that the longer the patients survived, the more likely they were to die from another disease.
• Patients who use an interactive personal health
record (IPHR) are almost twice as likely to be up to date with clinical preventive services as those who don’t, according to a study led by Alexander Krist, MD, MPH. Published in the journal Annals of Family Medicine, the study found that after 16 months, 25 percent of those using IPHR were up to date with all recommended preventive services.
Increase the breadth and depth of externally funded basic, translational and clinical research:
• Obtained peer-reviewed, national level, sponsored research project funding totaling $29,754,455, representing 86 percent of total research funding.
• Obtained $13,130,492 from the National Cancer Institute to support 57 research projects.
• Forty-four percent of peer-reviewed funding and 38 percent of total funding was obtained through grants from the NCI.
Advocating for state funding from the General Assembly involves passionate volunteers and Advisory Board members, dedicated Massey faculty and committed partners in the Legislature.

Support research faculty in obtaining new funding to pursue promising concepts:
• Laura Siminoff, PhD, was awarded a four-year
grant totaling $2,239,329 from the National Institutes of Health to develop a training program and to mentor the next generation of social scientists and leaders in Cancer Prevention and Control research.
• Charles E. Chalfant, PhD, received a $577,832 grant from the National Institutes of Health to purchase a mass spectrometry instrument in the Lipidomics core, which will be used to support the research of many investigators. • Steven Grant, MD, received continued financial
support from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society for his world renowned work in discovering new therapies for hematological malignancies.

support additional projects funded by the Tobacco Commission and the acquisition of managing all pre-award activities for our members in the Radiation Oncology Department. Grant submission activity has increased as competition for NIH dollars increases, requiring investigators to submit more grant proposals to be successful in finding funding for their research.
• In collaboration with the Clinical and Translational
Science Awards (CTSA), Lynne Penberthy, PhD, expanded the Clinical Trials Eligibility Database (CTED), developed within one of Massey’s shared resources to support other disease areas throughout the VCU Health Sciences campus. CTED will be made available to other areas conducting clinical trials.

• We greatly appreciate every gift, large and small. However, because of space limitations, we can only list contributions of $500 and more. For the third year, the Richmond community was invited to tour downtown’s hidden gardens during the Secret Garden Party. Becky’s Healing Garden at the Goodwin Research Laboratory was one of the featured gardens and hosted more than 300 attendees with refreshments and music. Secret Garden Party committee members and Massey volunteers Judy Jamison and Karen Solana were two of Massey’s hosts for the evening.
